Before They Were Mad Men

beforeMadMen1.jpgFor the past few weeks, we've waded through YouTube sludge in our quest to find video gold: footage of the Mad Men cast before they donned their bouffants and skinny ties and entered the doors of Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce. We managed to track down everything from Christina Hendricks playing a high schooler on MTV's melodrama, Undressed, to Vincent Kartheiser (a.k.a. Pete Campbell) playing a bratty 90s kid in Indian in the Cupboard to Jon Hamm flashing his now-signature smirk in Space Cowboys.  Check out our highlights below:

Christina Hendricks a.k.a Joan Holloway

MTV's Undressed, 1999

On MTV's late 90s/early 00s "late night soap opera" that focused on all things sex -- the surprisingly still-there-from-1999-website bio reads "Undressed examined every type of sexual relationship imaginable, including those involving different races, sexual orientations and fetishes" -- Hendricks plays a girl who arrives in California for some college visits and gets it on with a guy named Ricky she met at a Greyhound bus station.

Vincent Kartheiser a.k.a. Pete Campbell

The Indian in the Cupboard, 1995

Go to 9:24 to see Kartheiser as main character Omri's older brother, replete with long hair and center part. "I found him in here, Beavis!"

John Slattery a.k.a. Roger Sterling

Sex and the City, 2000

Who can forget Slattery's SATC story arc playing the politician with a golden shower fetish?  Before she discovered his kinky side though, watch Carrie reluctantly fall under Slattery's charm after they meet during a Staten Island firefighters' benefit.

January Jones a.k.a. Betty Draper

Anger Management, 2003

In memorable scene from the Jack Nicholson-Adam Sandler flick, Jones and Krista Allen play porn star lovers who wind up in anger management sessions after a threesome goes awry. The couple then proceed to make out, much to delight of Luis Guzman, who's looking particularly fierce in a belly top and cornrows. Betty Draper, this is not.
Elisabeth Moss a.k.a. Peggy Olson

Excedrin Commercial, 2005
"If you have migraines, you know pain. These things are for real," Moss says in an oddly sultry voice while shilling for Excedrin. Her contract must've had some extra-special clause because, seven years later, we swear we still see these commercials.

Jon Hamm a.k.a. Don Draper
